Ascent Trip Report

Very strenuous hike from Appalachia, via Amphibrach/King's Ravine/Great Gully "trail". Great Gully trail ascent felt like a Lord of the Rings movie, ascending 3rd class rock chute with waterfalls, wet rocks, rolling fog, and occasional views. New respect for White Mountains. Would not like to descend that route.
